The goal of this lab was to study the effect of unbalanced forces on an object. The theory stated
that if two masses are connected by an ideal cord hanging over an ideal pulley, and th

The purpose of this experiment was to verify Newtons second law of motion which
states that an objects acceleration is the net applied force inversely related to its mass. To
accomplish this, we used a rolling cart attached to a pulley system, whi
Essence
When an object is heated, it will expand as the atoms which make up the object
increasingly vibrate and create greater distances amongst themselves. In this experiment,
we examined the rates at which various metals expanded when heat was applied.
Essence:
According to Archimedes principle, the buoyant force on a submerged body equals the
weight of the displaced fluid. This allows us to determine the density of an object that has
an irregular shape, where the objects volume cannot be determined by
Lab 2: Motion and G
Essence:
The purpose of this lab was to study one dimensional motion and determine the
acceleration due to gravity, g. One-dimensional change in position of an object
can be related to its speed which can then be used to describe the o
Essence
In this experiment, we sought to verify the conservation of mechanical energy. If kinetic
energy is completely converted into gravitational potential energy, then potential energy
should equal kinetic energy. To confirm this theory, we used a Blac

Essence:
The goal of this lab was to verify Newtons second law of motion, which says that the net force
equals the product of the mass times the acceleration of the object. The theory also explained

Essence: The goal of this lab was to calculate a value of g, the acceleration due to gravity. The
theory stated that acceleration due to gravity will be a constant value. Acceleration is the
derivative of velocity.
